Tylor Megill (0-2, 1.69 ERA) vs. MacKenzie Gore (4-4, 2.91 ERA)


Tylor Megill excelled as a suppressive pitcher despite limited innings pitched; with an ERA and WHIP combined of 1.69 over 16 innings illustrating this impressive control and making runs against him exceedingly hard for batters to produce. Megill’s stats reflect his ability to limit hits and walks – an indispensable skill when pitching under intense pressure – though his win/loss record doesn’t show this efficiency due to insufficient run support from Mets’ batters. Megill has managed a perfect zero home run allowance so far this season, an indication of his ability to keep the ball within the park when facing teams with moderate home run statistics such as the Nationals. But in order to turn things around and turn quality starts into wins for Megill’s season to turn, he needs Mets bats to wake up and convert those into victories.


MacKenzie Gore boasts an impressive 4-4 record this season and has pitched more innings than Megill; thus his 2.91 ERA remains admirable and highlights his ability to consistently manage opposing batters over longer outings. Gore has amassed 72 strikeouts so far this season, showing his aggressive approach and ability to strike out batters when needed. Unfortunately, Gore’s slightly elevated WHIP of 1.28 and the allowance of five homers reveal some areas of vulnerability which could prove critical when games come down to thin margins. If Gore can maintain his strikeout rate while tightening control to reduce hits and home runs allowed, he could very well outshout Mets offensive performance in their next start against him.
